There are so many makeup foundations in the market that we always get confused
while choosing.Are there any summative judgment principles for choosing a good foundation? Based on my experience and related information, I have concluded the following 8 principles.
First of all, the foundation's main function is to even out skin tone and conceal, so the formula is nothing more than some powders and pigments with concealer, such as titanium dioxide, iron oxide. Therefore, the quality of the liquid foundation is inseparable from the powder and color used.
The powder used in the liquid foundation is almost from the treatment of natural minerals. Impurities will inevitably remain during the processing. Generally, regular brands will control the amount of heavy metals in the powder to ensure that it is used on the skin in a normal safe range. However, the products on the Internet are mixed, and it is difficult to guarantee the quality of all products. Therefore, you must be especially careful when purchasing products.
High-quality powder (such as some silicone elastomers) will also be more delicate in skin feel and better in ductility. In addition, some surface treatment techniques (such as fluorosilane surface treatment, double surface treatment, etc.) will be used, which will also make the foundation smoother and easier to push away during use.
In addition, a good formula also reflects the emulsification system. If the emulsification process is good, the powder can be evenly distributed in the liquid, the formula is more stable, and the ductility and persistence will be better.

Feel refreshed after applying makeup.
With the development of the market, more and more businesses are now launching skin-quality base makeup products. Usually these products are added with some antioxidants and moisturizing ingredients.
Even if the basic moisturizing care is done, the liquid foundation itself contains a lot of powder. After its moisture is dried, it will involuntarily absorb the moisture in the skin, which will not only cause some damage to the skin, but may also cause some powders to be absorbed. The phenomenon of stuck powder and floating powder appears when it reaches moisture, and the foundation with sufficient moisture can meet the moisture requirements of long-term makeup without floating powder.
Tips for choosing
Overall, there is a need to balance within these elements. On the one hand, it is doomed to be damaged on the other. For example, if the moisturizing degree is good, the oil content is high, you will feel a little greasy, and oily skin cannot be used.
With hydration, the hiding power is usually slightly weaker.
You can try it on the back of your hand when choosing. There is more texture on the back of the hand. Gently pat the foundation on the back of the hand, it feels that it can easily and evenly fill the texture, and the foundation on the back of the hand looks uniform, which can be your choice. In addition, many foundations now have nourishing functions. You can also choose according to your needs, such as whitening, firming, oil control, sun protection, etc. When choosing a foundation, it is best to sort out your own needs. A foundation that can fully meet all your needs may not exist.
